MetalCorp Limited Announces $1.4 Million Non-Brokered Private Placement of Flow-Through Units

Toronto, Ontario Canada (March 29, 2010) - MetalCorp Limited (TSX-V: MTC) is pleased to announce a proposed non-brokered private placement of up to 7,000,000 flow-through units (each, a "Unit") at a price of $0.20 per Unit (the "Offering") for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $1,400,000. Each Unit will be comprised of one flow-through common share and one-half of one transferable flow-through common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant (a "Unit Warrant") will entitle the holder to purchase one non-flow-through common share at any time for a period of two years, at a price of $0.35 in the first year and $0.45 during the second year.

MetalCorp will pay finder's fees of up to 6.5% of the aggregate gross proceeds of the Offering in cash and finder's warrants equal in number to up to 6.5% of the number of Units sold. Each finder's warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one finder's unit comprised of one non-flow through common share and one-half of one non-flow-through warrant (on the same terms as the Unit Warrant) at $0.20 per each such finder's unit.

The gross proceeds to MetalCorp from the Offering will be used to fund exploration expenses which qualify as "Canadian Exploration Expenses" (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)) in connection with MetalCorp's projects in Ontario, including its Pickle Lake and Red Lake (Black Bear) gold properties, and projects at its Hemlo East gold property.

All the securities issued pursuant to this private placement will be subject to a four (4) month hold period. Completion of the private placement is subject to receipt of all required regulatory and other approvals, including acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
